There are plenty of interesting, clever and intuitive ways to turn your two-wheeled transportation into a functional statement piece in your living room or loft, but few look as good as Vadolibero’s Bike Shelf. The Italian-based startup that believes a world designed for cyclists would be a better place has truly pulled out all the stops (including the price) when it comes to displaying your passion for your bike. Built out of birch blockboard with a matte natural oakwood or matte wenge tinted oakwood, each modular bike piece shelf features a universal stainless bike clamp, three lower cubbies for gear, posts for hanging storage and a handlebar-shaped clothes rack that also functions as an LED light for the entire piece. There are plenty of upgrades available (extra side unit, modular drawers, etc.), but even the base model has enough place for a complete kit for a single rider. Since it’s accessible from both sides, it’s also a good stand for maintenance purposes.
